My injected Scala is taking two or three turns of the ignition to get it started from cold. Seems like fuel is not getting through on first / second turn then fires up fine.
I've heard talk of 5th injector being the culprit although are replacements available? Any suggestions?

I'd recommend you to get a fuel pressure tester. you should check the operation of the cold start injector and thermo time switch. lots online about this stuff
this might be useful too:

Remove the 5th injector and place it in a jar, start up the engine and see if any fuel comes out.
The 5th injector is controlled by a thermo switch on the main coolant outlet on the the front of the head, there is a guide to testing the thermo time switch in the Haynes manual.
